Manchester City edge ahead of Manchester United in Otamendi hunt

Manchester City have edged ahead of neighbouring rivals Manchester United in the hunt for Valencia defender Nicolas Otamendi.

The Argentina international has made it clear he wants to leave Mestalla this summer and the 27-year-old’s agent Jorge Mendes is believed to have met both English Premier League clubs over a potential switch and he is keen for his client to move to the Etihad Stadium due to improved contract terms.

Valencia are demanding Otamendi’s full £35 million release cause but neither Manchester club are ready to meet that figure, with the Velez Sarsfield academy product hoping his future will be decided before the start of the 2015/16 season.
